  • Young guns aim to make their mark

    The impression that it’s a battle to run a business in Los Alamos hasn’t deterred a growing crop of young entrepreneurs from returning to town after college to set up shop.

    Melissa Paternoster, a Los Alamos native, purchased the Blue Window Restaurant in June. Paternoster is a graduate of Los Alamos High School and attended the University of New Mexico.

  • Yemen orders New Mexico-born cleric found 'dead or alive'

    SAN'A, Yemen (AP) — A Yemeni judge ordered police Saturday to find a radical U.S.-born cleric "dead or alive" after the al-Qaida-linked preacher failed to appear at his trial for his role in the killing of foreigners.

    Yemen is under heavy U.S. pressure to crack down on the country's al-Qaida offshoot after a scheme to send bombs through the mail in packages addressed to the U.S. was thwarted a week ago. The group known as l-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility for the plot on Friday.

  • WH announces $10 billion in trade deals with India

    MUMBAI, India (AP) — President Barack Obama is announcing trade deals worth $10 billion with India that are expected to create 54,000 U.S. jobs.

    He's also unveiling new export rules designed to make it easier for U.S. companies to do business with the nation of 1.2 billion people.

    Obama was to make the announcements in a speech to U.S. and Indian business executives Saturday on the first day of his 10-day, four-country Asia trip.

  • Jockeys Borel, Castellano fight at Breeders' Cup--video extra included

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Jockey fights in horse racing are as much a part of the sport as whips, saddles and the $2 bet.

    Most times, the dustups take place behind closed doors, not in the winner's circle.

    And certainly not on national television following a Breeders' Cup race.

  • Resetting state government

    The election is pretty much done as I write the weekend before the final day of voting. But not knowing the identity of our new governor doesn’t matter for the immediate purpose.
    The campaign ended with neither Susana Martinez nor Diane Denish having provided detailed, substantive ideas for solutions to the state government’s revenue/spending saga.

  • Living on wrong side of screen

    There’s something wrong with my wife. Yeah, she’s definitely not normal. I saw her loading the clothes washer and she wasn’t singing. She wasn’t dancing.  She wasn’t even smiling.  In fact, she seemed downright bored.  For some reason, doing the laundry didn’t fulfill a cosmic sense of purpose for her.  Come to think of it, there was no lively background music either.
    We must be using the wrong brand of detergent.

  • LA boys once again upset-minded heading into state

    Whatever pressure there may be heading into the Class AAAA boys cross country meet appears not to be on the Los Alamos Hilltoppers. At least not any external pressure.
    Heading into the Class AAAA championship race, which is scheduled for Saturday at Rio Rancho High School, Los Alamos knows that it’s not expected to win but has enough confidence to pull off what could be another monumental upset.
